Judging by their social media posts one my think the Trans Cultural Mindfulness Alliance (TCMA) is a parody account - but they assure us that they are not.

They are just easy to laugh at.

A recent Twitter post by the group has them being “mindful” of other people’s songs that are available on internet streaming platforms. The group is calling for the removal of Aretha Franklin’s song “Natural Woman” because “There is no such thing as a ‘natural’ woman.”

They also believe the song has generated acts of violence,  “This song has helped inspire acts of harm against transgender women.”

The laughter this organization has generated is contagious on the internet.

Instead of listening to the “Queen of Soul” the organization proposes listening to the…Drag Queen of Soul?

 

The group has tweeted it’s support for Lionel Richie saying, “Lionel Richie's song ‘Three Times A Lady’ is a musical masterpiece that should be incorporated into drag queen sets. The song is actually about a non-binary woman (she switches genders three times in the course of their relationship) but this has been silenced."

 

Just don’t tell Lionel, who claims the song was based off a toast his dad made about his mother.

According to an interview Richie did with Billboard:

“My sister and I looked at my dad and said, ‘Dad, are you OK?’ He said, ‘She’s a great lady, she’s a great mother, and she’s a great friend.’ And I thought that was a great little toast, so I wrote basically this waltz — it wasn’t considered an R&B song.”

Maybe the trans group will have to silence Richie now too.

The TCMA can’t handle the truth on many subjects. Just like other members of the fascist left, they want to control, censor and silence what you can hear - even music - rather than engage in a debate that exposes truth and facts.
